MOSCOW -- With his freshman season serving as Idaho's kicker and punter now over, Austin Rehkow has decided to take on another challenge.
University of Idaho Media Relations confirmed Wednesday that the Central Valley grad has joined the Vandal basketball team as a walk-on. Rehkow was an All-Greater Spokane League guard for the Bears, averaging over 14 points per game as a senior.
Rehkow was slated to begin practicing with Don Verlin's team as soon as Wednesday. However, since Rehkow was not able to take part in the official tryout for walk-ons, Verlin will use the next week of practices as an extended tryout.
For the time being the CV grad is officially on the Idaho roster.
The Vandals' next appearance takes place Saturday, when they host Washington State at 7:00 p.m.
